The Salem Culturefest is held each July on the Salem Common (next to the historic Hawthorne Hotel). This event features live bands who showcase many cultures and styles, as well as other performers who entertain you while you enjoy exploring the unique arts, crafts, and wares of our area’s finest artists and crafters. Everyone is welcomed to attend this fun family-friendly event, and it is our hope to make this event a permanent part of Salem’s annual events.
One of the primary goals of the Salem CultureFest is to bring to the surface the many cultures and diversity found in and around Salem, Massachusetts. For a city with such a rich history, Salem should become known for what it truly is: A place to explore anytime of the year.
This festival is hosted by a nonprofit organization called A3D, Inc. (African Development through Drum & Dance). The Salem CultureFest showcases talent found in and around the Salem area, while also sharing the many cultures found locally, such as the high energy West African World Fusion band MAMADOU and Debra Crosby’s Talent Quest TV Show Winner’s Circle. Performers coming from diverse world traditions will be offering live entertainment on both days of this exciting event.
